Stephanie and Chris operate a wonderful small hostel above downtown Kangding. The yak burger was excellent. The view from room 9 at night is beautiful. I met several backpackers here and everyone was so polite.

Zhilam Hostel is great choice! Aside from the nice room and shared space, the staff hospitality was great. Kris helped us plan hiking trips around the area and made a huge effort to make us feel welcome!

Wonderful to have you here with us. You'd be amazed at how difficult it is for some of our guests to find their way here. Even with the old fashion map on our website. Come back any time!

About
Description
Our hostel sits on a hillside just above Kangding city-center. It can be reached by a foot-path in just five minutes. We can also be reached by car, although the route is a little longer. Being above the town, we More enjoy great views, peaceful silence, and a little cleaner air. We are situation across the valley from Pama Mountain (a major tourist destination) and have great views of snow caps to the South. Less
